Monaco’s partnership with the Eurecom Digital Science School at Sophia Antipolis is now expanding to include concrete themes such as smart city, future networks, mobility and the deployment of high-performance infrastructures to facilitate innovation.
The school provides ongoing support to the Principality as part of the cooperation agreement signed in June 2015 with the Metropole of Nice Côte d’Azur on digital innovation. The objective is to build a mobility laboratory by associating other members of the Institute (Orange and Monaco Telecom).
Monaco is associated with the EURECOM GIE (Economic Interest Grouping) through its National Financing Company. The GIE brings together renowned French and European academic partners as well as leading industrial partners, including Orange, ST Microelectronics, BMW, IABG, and Symantec.
Initially, the partnership concerns digital security, Web and networks, in cooperation with Monaco Telecom, also a member of the Institute.
